We’ve had a three days of full-force spring weather here, at long last.  Yesterday I took a short bike ride and found a nearby road that snakes its way up the mountain, to where I’m not exactly sure.  After work today I made a quick detour to drive up further than I could have ever made it yesterday.  I still don’t know where the road goes, but I am intent on heading back up when I have more time.  The most appealing part of the hurried drive today was the ample sunlight squirting through the forest canopy where ever it could.

For all their artificial uniformity, I still find Japan’s cedar forests enchanting.




Back at sea level, I took Ray out for a sunset stroll while Chieko prepared dinner.



Sunsets on newly planted rice paddies is rising up the ranks in my book of cool evening scenery.

And that’s about it from here.  I’m not in the best of moods, but wanted to break up the Ray on this blog!  He’ll be back to tomorrow though, don’t fear.  Book-in-bed time.
